This report contributes to the IMPROVER project by providing information on the use of traditional and social media by relevant stakeholders to increase the resilience of critical infrastructures. It builds on the results of IMPROVER project D4.1 to explore the communication practices adopted by emergency managers and blue light organisations (e.g. police, fire and rescue … Continue reading Deliverable 4.2 A Communication Strategy to build Critical Infrastructure Resilience
The purpose of the work described in this report was to aid practitioners in infrastructure to promote resilient abilities within their organisations. The primary objective was to provide new knowledge about organisational resilience by studying real-world examples of how organisations in critical infrastructure tackle challenging situations. The secondary objective was to show how such expressions … Continue reading D.4.3 Organisational resilience concepts applied to critical infrastructure
The objective of this task is to create a link between critical infrastructure and different hazard maps according to different scenarios (e.g. natural hazards: floods, earthquakes, landslides, forest fires, meteorological extreme events due to climate change; man-made hazards: terrorist attacks, industrial accidents etc.). The maps may later be used to indicate the intensity of a … Continue reading D.3.1 Physical exposure identification and mapping methodologies
The aim of this report is to evaluate the contribution of individual resilience concepts to the resilience of critical infrastructure and to compare a number of existing methodologies for implementation of resilience concepts to critical infrastructure. The idea of implementation of resilience concepts to critical infrastructure and a comparison of those however requires that the … Continue reading D.2.3 Evaluation of resilience concepts applied to critical infrastructure using existing methodologies
This study concentrates on developing a generic rigorous methodology to identify suitable risk-based scenarios for various hazard classes, which can be used to assess the resilience of the critical infrastructure. IMPROVER and therefore this study concentrates on three critical infrastructure systems, namely: ports, potable water and motorway networks.
